    Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it to his brothers, and they hated him all the more. He said to them, 'Please hear this dream which I have dreamed: for, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and behold, my sheaf arose and also stood upright; and behold, your sheaves came around, and bowe...

    He took a towel, and wrapped a towel around his waist. Then he poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. Then he came to Simon Peter. He said to him, 'Lord, do you wash my feet?' Jesus answered him, 'You don't kno...

When The Brook Dries Up

  • So he went and did according to Yahweh's word; for he went and lived by the brook Cherith that is before the Jordan. The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drank from the brook. After a while, the brook dried up, because there was no rain in the land. Yahweh's word came to him, saying, 'Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and stay there. Behold, I have commanded a widow there to sustain you.' 1 Kings 17:5 WEB

    Each day Elijah watched the flow of water in the brook get smaller. God had told him to come here and He had supernaturally taken care of his needs, but now this brook was drying up, and God was not saying anything. Only after the brook had dried up did the word of the Lord come to Elijah, and He learned about the next place. Elijah did not know what was coming, or where he was going until then. He was like a soldier waiting on orders to come down the chain of command.

    Once the Lord put me in my own computer business. It was not planned; He pushed me into it through desperation and some very humbling circumstances. It prospered and was anointed for years. The Lord and I worked together as partners every day. Some days it was mostly ministry.

    There were divine appointments and I never knew what the next day held. At times the Lord would send us there to minister to the people. The computers would suddenly fix themselves when we walked into the building, but then we would end up anointing the manager with oil and praying for them and their family. The Holy Spirit would descend on them right there in the office and everyone would begin to weep.

    I was totally following the Holy Spirit one day at a time, but then it began to dry up, and He became silent. Finally after months without work or hearing Him, I was on the verge of breaking down, giving up, throwing in the towel, and bankruptcy. That was the week that He spoke and took us to the next level. He pushed us into full time ministry. It was I who was panicking, but one word from Him changed everything.

    Don't panic when the brook starts to dry up. When it has completely gone, the Lord will reveal the next step that you are to take. The time of silence will end. The time of lack will be over. The blessings will return. When God begins to promote you, He will often close out the old, before He opens the new.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please let me see the situation through Your eyes and focus on the bigger picture. Send us the Comforter for we want more of You in our lives. Help us make the right decisions, and to be in the right place, at the right time, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer" (Psalm 17:6) If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Maria Mesia
Maria Mesia Today word is anouncing I am at the finish line of a process, to enter to a new level in every aspects of my life. I have been processed into a seven times heated oven. Thanks God that is the reason of dryness. Holding Gods hand, expecting to see His glory open up new doors. Glory to God.
